Pandemonium ensued at the Avenue of Republic after policemen shot a street dweller in the buttocks. The shot man was identified as 36-year-old Rensford Campbell who has since been admitted to the Georgetown Public Hospital. The police were summoned to the National Library after reports were made that Campbell was in the compound and up in a tree. After the police arrived the man refused to descend from the tree. This caused police to fire multiple shots in his direction causing him to jump on a shed and run towards the exit of the library.

According to multiple eyewitnesses, after the man ran through the gate, a policeman then pursued Campbell and caught up with him and started stomping him in his back. The eyewitness further said that Campbell was chased to Avenue of the Republic where they continued to assault and then shoot him, causing the man to jump into a nearby trench. “When the man jump into the trench, a policeman pointed his gun at the man and started firing shots at him. Then a big crowd come around,” one man said. At the scene yesterday the crowd voiced their disdain at the way the man was treated after he jumped into the trench.
The man’s mother, a police constable, and another relative raced to the scene, in time to see Campbell being taken out of the trench and tossed into the rear of a police pick-up. His mother and another relative climbed aboard the vehicle which travelled to the Georgetown Public Hospital.
